It’s all the same in the end, both incandescence’s and CFL’s have an equal carbon footprint, and both rival each other as far as mercury. CFL’s reduce peak electrical demand which is why utilities are pushing them, so they don’t have to build generation capacity to meet just the peak, sitting idle during of peak. Both virtually have the same carbon and mercury footprint; the low cost incandescence’s with higher energy consumption cause more carbon and mercury emissions via the process of producing that additional energy. CFL’s on the other hand with a much lower energy demand come with the higher carbon and mercury footprint as a result of manufacturing and shipping the bulb. Just like photolytic panels are a joke with their manufactured footprints. Now LED’s are promising as manufacturing costs and emissions are reduced by the very long life of the diode. Still I like being off the grid.

Keith,

Its all part of the big plan first take away our choice of product, replace it with their lie, decrease supply as demand increases, cost rises (as if they aren't expensive already!) Next, rationing! Then a new government program to help those that won't help themselves!  @Bill this bill is no longer active since it was introduced into the 110th Congress. Is it being introduced again under another bill?
